We spent yesterday at an artist's house/studio on the shore of the Platte River. She and her husband hosted a group of artists from the gallery for a potluck BBQ, and the weather cooperated beautifully --- clear skies with a light breeze blowing all afternoon. Sitting along the bank, I fell in love with the serenity of the area, and her husband graciously golf-carted us around to look at the houses for sale in the area. Bottom line --- we have two riverfront houses to look at this week. We are thinking this would be a "weekend getaway for two / working studio for me during the week" type of purchase. Stay tuned for updates as we tour the houses.
